Huevos Rancheros

I have seen pictures of this breakfast dish so many times on blogs or in food magazines and it always made my mouth water. This breakfast combines two of my favorite things: eggs and avocados! Today I finally made it for the first time and it was super yummy. It is perfect for a late weekend breakfast of brunch. I used 2 large chili peppers for it, which made it quite spicy and actually made us sweat. I love to eat spicy. Leave out the chili peppers or remove the seeds if you don’t.

Huevos Rancheros is a traditional Mexican breakfast dish which exists in different variations with black beans, rice, guacamole and sour cream. This is my version of it with a spicy tomato sauce, avocado and feta cheese. I hope you like it – let me know!

Happy weekend!

Huevos Rancheros Breakfast

Serves two:

  • 2 corn or wheat tortillas
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1-2 chili peppers, finely chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 – 1 cup feta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • A handful of chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper

  • In a small pan, sweat onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat. Add the chili peppers. If you don’t like it too spicy, then remove the seeds from the chili peppers first. Stir-fry for about five minutes, then add the tomatoes. Let everything simmer over medium heat for about ten minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile cut the avocado lengthwise, remove the pit and the skin and the cut the avocado into strips and set aside. Roast the tortillas one by one with a little bit of olive oil in a pan over high heat on both sides until they become a little brown. Place the tortillas on a plate. Arrange avocado and the tomato sauce on top. Crumble some feta cheese over it and then place a fried egg on top. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
